Siddhanth Chaturvedi has created a fan base of his own post the release of Gully Boy. Although the young actor had delivered stellar performances in his previous web outings as well, it was the character of MC Sher in Zoya Akhtar's musical that made him an overnight sensation and a rage amongst the audience. And hence, it doesn't come as a surprise that the actor is flooded with film offers from many big banners.
Now, Peepingmoon.com has learned that Siddhant Chaturvedi has signed a three-film deal with India's one of the biggest production houses, Yash Raj Films. "Siddhanth is a YRF boy now. He will not be only handled by YRF's talent management division but has also been signed on for multiple films under the banner. The modalities have been worked out and the contract has also been signed. They will make it official with the announcement of their first film in a week or two," a source close to the actor informed us. The contract, the source added, however, allows Siddhant to work with other production houses as well in this time frame.
Siddhant's first YRF film will apparently be Bunty Aur Babli Again, the sequel to their 2005 hit starring Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukerji and Amitabh Bachchan in leads. He will be paired opposite a new young face that YRF is launching in this romantic-comedy, the source told us. "Siddhant is also in talks with Shimit Amin for his second YRF project. Shimit who has previously directed films like Chak De India and Rocket Singh: Salesman of The Year is returning to direction after a decade with a film written by his long-time associate Jaideep Sahni and has approached Siddhant for the lead role. However, he hasn't been finalized as yet since the talks are still on."
It seems, Siddhant wait for 'good films' has been worth and in the next few months, he certainly has his plate full with this lucrative line-up!
